A win is a win, but honestly it was meh. The mascots may have had a better game.
It was great to see the Eagles beat the Redskins and stay alive in the playoff picture, but was it a convincing one? Colt McCoy left the game and also had his season end with a fractured fibula. The Redskins had MARK SANCHEZ play the majority of the game. He went 13 of 21 for 100 yards and a pick.
Washington’s biggest play was Adrian Peterson’s 90 yard run for a touchdown. He ran for eight more yards on each of his other eight carries. But it’s obvious the Redskins are starting to deplete.
As for the Birds, Golden Tate and Darren Sproles showed up again, while Zach Ertz set a franchise record for receptions in a single season. Overall, they played better than Jeffrey Lurie’s cornhole throwing form.
We’ll have more on this game later today. But prior to the game, the Birds didn’t claim Kareem Hunt off waivers.
A lot of rumors became official on Monday, both of them around the same time. The biggest was the Phillies officially acquiring Jean Segura from the Mariners. Juan Nicasio and James Pazos are also new Phillies, while J.P. Crawford and Carlos Santana head out west. Segura seemed to be very happy about it.
The best part might be Pazos. Is he the second coming of Sal Fasano?
